Budde Music France secured a worldwide administration deal (excluding France) with Sophiane Productions.
SOPHIANE PRODUCTION releases albums since 1998 and has developed publishing & synchronisation activity since 2002, as well as tour management. The team defends a wide range of artistic styles, from chanson, folk & country, pop rock to reggae, soul & world music.
Danone, Volkswagen or Peugeot entrusted them with synchronization for their advertisement campaign worldwide, with Cocoon’s sweet folk, or with Elderberries’ wild rock. Sophiane Production also dealt with Michelin brand’s jingle worldwide, realized by sound engineer Denis Clavaizolle (Bashung, Cocoon, Murat, Zaz…).
They have also placed and created works for movies as Hellphone (2007), L’Amour, c’est mieux à deux (2009) or l’Arnacoeur in 2010.
In 2006, Cocto, former radio DJ (NRJ) & founder of Music Media Consulting (media strategy agency), created SPACE PARTY to combine publishing and label activities.
Space party offers creative and strategic support to plug songs, and their relation with media, record companies and artists allow them to develop high potential projects, from ‘one shot’ dance tracks to complete artist development. Their catalogue counts about 600 tracks, representative of the French pop musical landscape, and their work for Flavia Coelho or Dj Mam’s (Zumba acclaimed hits ‘Fiesta Buena’ and ‘Zumba He Zumba Ha’) made them #8 label among the national club charts in 2013 (Yacast survey).
We are very pleased to announce our new collaboration with Space Party / LM Music !!
